LITTLE LEARNERS: Lyttelton Primary School pupils have had their first day of learning in their brand new building. Pupils were welcomed to the new school, on the corner of

Oxford St and Sumner Rd, with a mihi whakatau, or formal welcome, on Monday morning. There were speeches and a cake cutting. Lyttelton Primary is the result of a merger

between Lyttelton Main and West schools. The school had been operating out of two separate sites until April 15, the last day of term one. • More photos, p17.

Intersection riddled with problems

CONFUSING: The Hagley-Ferrymead Community Board has asked

whether traffic signals could be installed at the bottom of St

Andrews Hill Rd, after a city council report criticised the layout of the

intersection.

BRIDGET RUTHERFORD

The new Ferrymead bridge

intersection re-design is riddled

with problems, a report has

revealed.

The city council designed and

installed the Bridle Path and St

Andrews Hill Rds intersection,

which was operational in September.

But now its own traffic engineers

have found significant design

problems that they say should have

been picked up when a pre-construction

safety audit was done in

February 2014.

The problems include difficulties

turning right onto Bridle Path

Rd from St Andrews Hill Rd, the

speed of vehicles approaching

the intersection, a lack of visibility,

and queuing of vehicles.

Go Bus, which is contracted by

Environment Canterbury to run

bus routes in the area, said in the

report that the right turn out of

St Andrews Hill Rd was “almost

impossible for the drivers”.

Now, the Hagley-Ferrymead

Community Board, which

ordered the investigation, has

directed staff to come up with

ways of making the intersection

better, including the possibility

of putting in traffic signals at the

bottom of St Andrews Hill Rd.

The underground cables have

been laid for the signals, and it

would cost about $150,000 for

them to be activated.

Previously the Bay Harbour

News reported that residents

were frustrated with the intersection,

with many saying they

avoided using it.

The report said residents’

concerns were “valid” and the

intersection design was “far from

ideal”.

Community Board chairwoman

Sara Templeton said it was clear

the concerns raised were valid, and

while accidents were unlikely to be

serious, they were expected to be

commonplace.

Bid to bring cruise ships home

Report being

discussed behind

closed doors

BRIDGET RUTHERFORD

Location and costs of installing

a new Lyttelton cruise ship berth

have been discussed behind

closed doors.

A “highly confidential” report

has been developed and presented

to Christchurch City Holdings

Ltd last week, but it can

not be made public because it is

“commercially sensitive”.

CCHL is an investment arm of

the city council.

City councillor Ali Jones, who

is part of a working party set up

to support the cruise ship berth

rebuild in Lyttelton, said it was

now up to CCHL chief executive

Bob Lineham as to when

the information would go to the

city council.

She hoped it would be within

the month, however it was unlikely

to be made public then.

“It’s an extremely robust and

positive piece of work that I’m

really excited about it being

presented to council,” she

said.

Lyttelton’s cruise ship berth

was damaged in the earthquakes,

and cruise ships have been hosted

by Akaroa since, with mixed

reactions from businesses and

residents.

Cr Jones said the working party

saw the report first, and made

a few adjustments before it was

presented to the board.

“There is no indication at this

stage from council or any party

that a cruise berth will go ahead.

There is still much to do including

speaking with the cruise

lines who are obviously key

to any decision on a cruise

berth.”

However, she said she could

not express enough how “important”

it was to get cruise ships

back into Lyttelton.

Lyttelton-Mt Herbert Community

Board chairwoman Paula

Smith said the board had not

seen the contents of the report,

but understood it looked into

economics.

She said it was important to

the board and local businesses

that cruise ships returned to

Lyttelton.

Before the earthquakes, when

ships came in, businesses would

see about a 10 per cent increase

WELCOME

in turnover, she said.

A Lyttelton Port of Christchurch

spokeswoman said LPC

would not comment on the rebuild.

Christchurch and Canterbury

Tourism chief executive Vic Allen

said rebuilding a cruise ship

berth in Lyttelton was being

worked on, and it was supporting

that effort.

PORT EXPANSION PROGRESS

Lyttelton Port of Christchurch’s

reclamation of Te Awaparahi Bay

has reached 9.35ha and is expected

to increase to 10ha this year. More

than 2,400,000 tonnes of earthquake

demolition material and

rubble has gone into the reclamation,

which has allowed the port

to expand. 5.5 hectares of the

reclamation is in use and another

hectare will be available mid-year.

COUNCILLOR STANDS DOWN

City councillor Tim Scandrett

wants to stand down from the

Selwyn Waihora Zone Committee

if a replacement can be found.

Cr Scandrett said the committee

meetings often clashed with his

Spreydon-Heathcote Community

Board meetings, making it difficult

for him to attend. While he still

kept up to date with what happened

in the meetings, he said he would

prefer if an elected member who

lived in the area took over.

UNHITCHING INVESTIGATION

Police have spoken to about 10

people about a $150,000 boat being

unhitched from its mooring in

Akaroa Harbour. The Debbie Jane,

a fishing trawler, was set afloat at

about 1.30am on April 23. Senior

Constable Anita Osborne said police

know of a number of vehicles

that were in the area at the time

and were continuing to investigate.

Anyone with information should

contact police on 363 7400 or

Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

LUCKY: A Christchurch man will appear in the district court on May 17

charged with driving with excess blood alcohol and careless driving,

after he crashed his truck near Birdlings Flat.

Drink driving charges for

driver of crashed truck

BRIDGET RUTHERFORD

A man who crashed his vehicle

near Birdlings Flat in March

was allegedly more than three

times over the legal breath

alcohol limit.

Senior Constable Anita

Osborne said the Christchurch

man would appear in the district

court on May 17, charged

with driving with excess blood

alcohol and careless driving.

The 48-year-old was driving

home from Birdlings Flat

on March 30 at about 1.30pm

when he rolled his vehicle over

an embankment into a paddock

near Jones Rd.

He was cut from the vehicle

and flown to hospital and was

“very lucky” to have only sustained

bruising.

His alcohol reading, which

Senior Constable Osborne

would not disclose, was later

taken at hospital.

Senior Constable Osborne

said he had gotten his truck

stuck in sand near a fishing spot

overnight, and was towed out in

the morning.

He was driving back to

Christchurch the following day,

and had driven less than 2km,

when he crashed, she said.

Senior Constable Osborne

said he had “possibly fallen

asleep” and when she arrived

he smelt of alcohol.

Saturday is the day for a group of 20

daring dancers who will perform to

raise money for Sumner charities.

Strictly Sumner will be held at

Sumner School hall, where 10 couples

will show off what they have

learned - dance routines - over the

last two months in front of 500 supporters.

Guest judges for this year’s event

will be former The Bachelor NZ and

DANCE OFF: The Strictly Sumner contestants

will perform in front of guest judges, including

Chrystal Chenery (above), and a crowd on

Saturday.

Dancing With the Stars contestant

Crystal Chenery, dance professional

Scott Cole and ONE News reporter

Lisa Davies.

Each couple has been having

dance lessons and practising over

the past two months, and will perform

choreographed routines.

The event follows last year’s Place-

Makers Fight for Sumner.

Saturday’s event is black tie and

guests at the VIP gala tables will

have a three course meal from Continental

Event Catering, and those

at elevated seating will have a supper

box provided by Nourish Food

Company.

The money raised will go towards

the chosen charities of each couple.

Jodi Wright

Veteran festival director’s work with writers,

Sumner’s Jodi Wright is again running the Cavell Leitch New

Zealand Jazz and Blues Festival which will take place this

month. She spoke to Bridget Rutherford about starting the

World Buskers Festival, living in Sumner and writing a novel

inspired by growing up around addiction

So can you tell me a bit about

this month’s Cavell Leitch NZ

Jazz and Blues Festival?

Well this is the 18 th Cavell

Leitch New Zealand Jazz and

Blues Festival. Post-earthquakes

it’s been a real

challenge because of the

venue situation. We’ve

spent the last couple of

years using different venues

but this is the first year

we’re back at a proper one,

the Isaac Theatre Royal.

This year’s event is also

a celebration of the jazz

school turning 25, so we’ll

have that on the first day

on May 25, and on May

26 we have the Ramsey

Lewis Quartet, they are

coming in from Chicago.

The festival

has been running

for a while, I feel

really great about

how the city’s

progressing and

the rebuild. We

also moved

the festival from April to May this year

because historically it has been in the

school holidays, but we wanted to incorporate

the great high school jazz bands.

This year it will feature four high school

jazz bands, but I would have preferred to

have more.

Where was the festival hosted after

the earthquakes?

We had some at The Bedford. We had

Charlie Musselwhite, one of the greatest

blues performers in the world, perform in

the student lounge at Christchurch Polytechnic

Institute of Technology (now Ara

Institute of Canterbury), which he was ok

to do because he comes from grassroots.

I told him the situation, that we had a

big earthquake, and he was like ‘wow,

I will come out’. Bonnie Raitt played

in the Christchurch Town Hall in 2008,

and came back in 2013 and was fully

aware of the quake. It’s been a challenge

in some ways to accommodate acts that

require a proper concert hall. The Piano

venue which is nearly built venue, looks

wonderful, so things are coming around.

Who will be at this month’s festival?

I have Ramsey Lewis and Tami Neilson

performing in the Transitional Cathedral,

doing a bluesy country show, and there

are so many other great performers. One

group has put together a Stevie Wonder

show. For four nights we have international

acts. We’ve also got great art work

this year, so it’s been good. We’ve got a

bit of everything, and even jazz shows at

The George.

So how long have you been running

the festival?

Eighteen years. I started the World

Buskers Festival, and I just retired from

that two years ago. Sometimes in the 90s

and 2000s I would be running three or

four festivals at a time. I was executive

director for the writers festival as well.

I don’t know how or why I did all of it

at the same time, but I would be running

from one to another.

Can you fill me in on how the World

Buskers Festival actually started?

Well, right about the time you were

born I moved to New Zealand from Seattle.

I had a difficult time because I come

from this background of events and marketing

and I had difficulty finding a job.

After a while of not finding a job, I called

the then mayor Vicki Buck. She was really

good and encouraging. She said she

had been planning to put a committee

together to start a Festival of Romance

and said I should apply for it. So I did,

and I got it. The Festival of Romance was

an outdoor arts and entertainment festival,

centred around the central city and

the Arts Centre for nine days, concluding

on Valentine’s Day. It was sweet, but

the funding for it just wasn’t happening.

Then I started the World Buskers Festi-

val. Vicki and I came up with

the name of it. At the Festival

of Romance we had a few street

performers who would turn up,

which gave us the idea to hold

their own festival. I put together

performers in 1994. It grew and

grew and grew slowly. Then

suddenly it grew a lot.

Why did you decide to step

down?

I stepped down in November

2014, but I set up the whole line

up for 2015 festival beforehand.

I was writing a novel, I’ve been

a writer for a long time, but

I kept putting it on the back

burner. I had 22 years at the

World Buskers Festival, I just

thought something has to give.

I felt like I had taken it as far as

I could with the resources that

were available to me.

So you’re originally from

America, why the move to

New Zealand?

I married a man from South

Canterbury, he was in the

United States playing polo. I

met him at a jazz club. He sat

next to me, I had a friend with

me, but I couldn’t understand a

word he said. When he said he

played polo I assumed he played

water polo. I remember saying

to him ‘so you wear beanies on

your head and speedos’? And

he was like what? (laughs) His

name is Peter, and he is a car

dealer. We’ve always lived in

Christchurch.

How long have you been in

Sumner for?

I’ve lived in Sumner since

2003, for a long time. It’s

beautiful. It’s a nice village,

and there’s a nice feeling. I can

go out my door and walk all

the way to Godley Head. The

quakes did wipe us out, they

wiped everyone out, but things

are coming back around.

Do you have any kids?

Yes, they’re in their 30s, they

are in Christchurch. We’ve gone

back to the States often but it’s

hard to live somewhere else

then go back, the energy is so

different. Everything is a big

drama there, and with that election

everything is on edge. It

feels like reality television, like

a spoof. It’s calmer and easier

to live here. If you’re a creative

person and you want to spend

time writing or painting, there’s

a lot of space here to do that.

What I miss about the States is

my family.

And you mentioned before

you were writing a book, fill

me in.

It’s published now. It took a

year from when I left buskers to

Leitch New Zealand Jazz and Blues Festival in 2013, and is pictured

finish it. It’s a novel called How

to Grow an Addict. I’ve been

writing for years and years. I

wrote this book because I have

experience of drug addiction

and alcohol addiction, but the

book is not my story. It was so

long ago, before I moved here.

I just grew up around heavy

drinkers, and I was one of those

teens who was always throwing

a party. I was the first one to

drink anything. It was fun for a

while until it wasn’t anymore.

So if people in the area

wanted to go to the jazz festival,

the closest would be at

Orange Studio?

Yes. I’m hoping to be able to

use Sumner Surf Life Saving

Club next year. But there will

be improvisation jazz shows at

Orange Studio.

Any plans to start up any

more festivals in the future?

You just never know. I will

never say no. If something

really great came along and I

thought the city could use this,

I would.

your local Views

Ian Knewstubb of Lyttelton responds to

Paula Smith’s Soap Box column calling

for Lyttelton Port of Christchurch’s No 4

wharf to be turned into a public space:

As one who has spent over 25 years supporting

heritage in Lyttelton, this proposal

should be supported to the hilt.

It would be a perfect site for a new

Lyttelton Museum and the Diamond

Harbour Ferry.

With the move east for commercial

operations and the container trade of the

port company, and the relocation of many

civic activities to the corner of Canterbury

and London Sts, the visual relationship

between No 4 and the town is compelling.

With a pedestrian walkway over Norwich

Quay and rail operations, and with

enhanced public space developments as

found in Auckland etc, this would make

for a wonderful heritage area as befitting

the maritime history of Lyttelton.

I am well aware how this wharf has

been neglected but the cost of demolition

would be horrendous and such monies

could be set aside for maintenance and

preliminary developments.

There is no need for undue haste as we

are now just recovering from the terrible

loss of built heritage in Lyttelton.

Do you have a leaky home?

The Financial Assistance Package, which

helps people with a contribution to repair

leaky homes, is closing to new claims on

23 July 2016.

To give time for an assessment to be

undertaken, applications should be with

MBIE by 27 June 2016.

financial assistance.

Readers respond to a

suggestion that the annual

Guy Fawkes fireworks display

at New Brighton could be

held at Sumner while the pier

receives repairs:

Diana Johnston, of Sumner

– No to an annual fireworks

display in Sumner.

Sumner area is just not

large enough to accommodate

potentially the thousands

of people who may attend.

Sumner roads are narrow,

constantly being worked on

and easily congested. Try

travelling to and from on a

Sunday afternoon.

Sumner hills in the last

couple of years have had at

least three fires, two where

empty (thank goodness)

properties were set alight

and burned to the ground,

and last week a scrub fire

on Scarborough was just

contained.

We have endured a fairly

tragic few years post the major

and minor earthquakes and I

would not like to see any more

risk taken down here.

I grew up in this area and

remember fireworks on Sumner

Beach, but this was minimal

compared to the huge event.

Christchurch now holds,

and mainly attended by

residents.

Lastly, New Brighton has a

much larger area of ocean and

beach than Sumner and plenty

of parking.

Hagley Park could also be

an appropriate venue with

plenty of open space and

accommodation for parking.

Jan Lisle - I am sure Sumner

would do a great job hosting

the fireworks and the

community would get behind

it.

Housing subsidy still needed

A Government heating and

insulation subsidy programme

comes to an end in June.

Community Energy Action

Charitable Trust chief executive

Caroline Shone writes this week’s

column about the importance

of the programme and why it

should continue in some form.

Shelter is one

of the most basic

of human needs

and the Universal

Declaration of

Human Rights

says that everyone

has the right to

housing.

It can be debated that housing

that makes people sick, isn’t

housing at all.

However houses that are damp,

houses that are cold, with the

people living in them unable

to heat them to an adequate

temperature to keep them healthy,

are a reality for many households

in Christchurch.

The old, the young and the sick

suffer most in those houses.

We all know the result.

Every winter sees many

residents ending up in hospital

with preventable cold-related

health issues. Even healthy people

get sick more often in those cold,

damp houses.

From experience we know that

SOAP

BOX

installing insulation and heating

in people’s homes especially those

with health conditions will reduce

hospitalisations, delivering cost

savings to the health system.

Installing insulation and heating

is a one-off cost but the benefits

last a long time, saving money on

health and saving lives every year.

The Government through

the Energy Efficiency and

Conservation Authority (EECA)

have spent $450 million

nationwide on insulation and

heating subsidies over the last

couple of years.

And we know it has made a

difference.

The current subsidy programme

comes to an end in June this year.

It would be fantastic if subsidies

would be available in the future

for those who need insulation.

It’s a great way for Christchurch

people to help those in their

community who need a bit of help

to create a warm, dry, healthy

home.

TRICKY JOB: Abseilers began getting rid of loose rocks on the cliff above

Moa Bone Cave last week.

Rock danger removed

Abseilers began scaling loose

rocks from the cliffs around

Sumner last week as part of

a project to reduce the risk of

hazardous rock falls to the Sumner

-Lyttelton lifeline route.

The scaling work began last

Tuesday on the cliff above Moa

Bone Cave with abseilers using

crowbars and airbags to leverage

loose rock from the cliff face.

City council senior geotechnical

engineer Dr Ian Wright said crow

bars were efficient at removing the

smaller rocks, but airbags were

necessary for some of the bigger

ones.

They were slipped in behind the

rock and inflated like a balloon.

Once inflated, they applied up to 24

tonnes of pressure behind the rock,

causing it to become unstable and

collapse into a safe area below.

It was a better alternative than

blasting in a residential area, Dr

Wright said.

The work will minimise the

risk of dangerous rock falls in the

event of future trigger events such

as earthquakes.

Other cliffs around Sumner

would be tackled in the coming

months.

Other hazard reduction work

planned around Sumner includes

construction of a 3m high, 300m

long rock stack bund in front of

Shag Rock Reserve, also known

as Peacock’s Gallop.

The bund, which will have a 2m

high mesh security fence erected

in front of it, is designed to

catch any rocks that fall from the

cliff face above if another quake

strikes.

It will be constructed entirely

from material that has already

fallen from the cliff.

Heritage award recognition

for landmark buildings

HISTORIC: The Gaiety was one of

Heritage Awards.

Three Akaroa landmarks and

a Ferrymead house are finalists

in the Canterbury Heritage

Awards.

Akaroa’s Banksia Cottage is

nominated for an award in the

Domestic Saved and Restored

category. It’s work was carried

out by Plane Tree Ltd.

The Gaiety, which was

repaired and officially opened

last month, is up for the Public

Realm Saved and Restored

award.

Banks Peninsula War Memorial

was repaired by Fulton Hogan

after sustaining earthquake

damage, it is in the running for

the Seismic category.

The memorial, which is

owned by a trust rather than the

city council or the Returned and

Services Association, was officially

reopened in October.

Curragh House, in Ferrymead,

will go for the Heritage Tourism

award.

A new Christ’s College

building, which is named after

Governors Bay resident and architect

Sir Miles Warren, is up

for the Future Heritage award.

There were nearly 80 entries

for the biennial awards, with

35 finalists selected to progress

through to the awards ceremony

on June 9.

The ceremony will be held in

the newly restored Great Hall in

the Christchurch Arts Centre.

Dancing in the

Streets

March is always one of the

busiest sales months of the year,

and this March was no exception!

Not only has Autumn provided

stellar weather to our beach

and hillside suburbs, it has been

a stellar month for Ray White

Ferrymead with very strong

sales during the past month. The

level of buyer enquiry remains

strong across all areas of the

market. The Ray White quarterly

list auctions, held on April 20th

at the Novotel, demonstrates

the enduring power of selling

property under the hammer, with

62.5 % sold on the day.

Our office continues to see

continuing high interest in ‘As is

Where Is’ properties, with a large

database seeking information

solely on these types of

properties as soon as the listing is

live. Overall sales volumes across

the Canterbury region are up by

24% compared to February, with

a rise of 19% increase in sales

volume compared to March last

year. Median house prices across

the Canterbury region for this

time of year are up 1-2%. REINZ

Regional Director, Jim Davis

commented that “it is noticeable

that stock levels are decreasing

again as new listings are, once

again, in short supply and sold

stock is not being replaced as

quickly. This slowdown of new

listing stock coupled with strong

sales has meant prices have

tended to remain strong and

steady so far this year across the

market and the drop in days on

market is a good indication of the

markets current strength.”

Our Loan Market representative

Antonia McAtamney has

commented that the Reserve

Bank has left the official cash

rate (OCR) unchanged at 2.25%.

So what that means for home

buyers, is that bank rates will

remain stable for the foreseeable

future.

Another hot topic around our

office besides property is the up

and coming “Strictly Sumner”

dance event, in which our very

own Principal, and twinkle toes,

Craig Prier will feature! Craig has

fortunately been partnered with

the tall and graceful Kath Cross,

owner of The Cornership Bistro!

As much as we like to give Craig

a hard time around the office

about his ‘2 left feet’, Craig has

pushed himself out of his comfort

zone entirely, and is doing this

to support the local Sumner

community. Craig and Kath have

Kath Cross and Craig Prier

Craig Prier

nominated the Sumner Resident’s Association as their

chosen charity.

Clayton Spence, Chair of the Association said money

raised will be used to purchase “some new funky signs

to advertise what we have to offer in this great village

of Sumner”. Strictly Sumner is a community fundraising

event with 10 charities in total represented. All funds

raised on the night are shared between these charities,

however all Give-A- Little proceeds go directly to the

Sumner Residents Association and are not shared.

At print current donations are $2, 161. This event will be

held at the Sumner School Hall on Saturday May 7th 2016.

Amputee’s story told $2.5m needed for health facility

FRASER WALKER-PEARCE

When Trixie Wuts was born

her parents had a very difficult

decision to make whether or not

to amputate both of her legs to

the knee.

On the advice of medical professionals,

Trixie’s parents Anton

and Margot decided amputation

was the best solution.

Their experience has been

documented in a childrens’ book

distributed by the Amputee Society

of Canterbury and Westland

to help families facing a similar

choice.

The society helped get a $5000

grant for the publishing and

distribution of the book from the

Artificial Limb Service.

Little Jellybean was written by

Margot and illustrated by Anton

based on their experience.

Trixie was diagnosed with distal

arthrogryposis before she was

born, meaning she had crooked

or hooked joints in her feet.

She had many procedures

done when she was born, which

attempted to correct the deformities

in both of her feet, but they

were largely unsuccessful.

The surgery was successful

and Trixie now “leads a full and

active life” with her new feet.

Amputee Society of Canterbury

and Westland president

Mark Bruce said the more families

that can be reached with the

book, the better.

“It’s about raising awareness

for parents in a situation where

their child is very unwell. The

story is mainly about the parents

having to make an incredibly

tough decision to help their children,”

he said.

Mr Bruce said the book will

become an invaluable source for

those looking for support.

“If you have a young one with

an amputation or have a young

one about to undergo an amputation

then this is a great resource.

“The future of the federation is

in its youth . . . If we can affect

just one family with the help of

this book, then it’s been a worthwhile

venture,” he said.

The society are making copies

of the book available from

their national and regional coordinators,

who can be contacted

on www.af.org.nz.

The Akaroa community now has

to raise $2.5 million for its new

health facility, which is expected

to be open by the end of next

The Canterbury District Health

Board announced on Monday the

design of the facility was ready

to go out for tender.

It hopes to begin construction

in November, with it completed

before the end of 2017.

Final costings for the new

facility are still being worked

LPC has sponsored a vehicle

for the Canterbury Youth

Development Programme.

It will mean co-ordinators

can make home visits to

disadvantaged youth and their

families, and provide transport

for youth to work and get an

education.

LPC chief executive Peter

Davie said the company

was delighted to support the

programme’s work.

“Thanks to the work of the

CYDP many youths now have

the opportunity to get into the

workforce and get their lives

back on track,” he said.

“We hope our contribution

September 2010 and February

2011 earthquakes and later

The new facility

would have eight aged

residential care beds and

four general practice

beds for inpatients, and

would house the general

practice and other

community services.

A community-owned

company, Akaroa Health Hub

Ltd, will be the provider of the

services.

The Akaroa Health Hub

Structure Group has already

raised about $400,000 to go

towards the facility.

Group chairman Alan Bradford

said the announcement that it

supports safer and more secure

homes for Canterbury’s youth

and the flow-on effects can

benefit the region that we live

The Mandibles: A Family, 2029–2047

by Lionel Shriver

The brilliant new novel from the Orange Prize-winning

author of We Need to Talk about Kevin centres on three

generations of The Mandible family as a fiscal crisis

hits a near-future America. ‘In God We Trusted’.

It is 2029. The Mandibles have been counting on a sizable

fortune filtering down when their 97-year-old patriarch dies.

Yet America’s soaring national debt has grown so enormous that it can never

be repaid. Under siege from an upstart international currency, the dollar is

in meltdown. A bloodless world war will wipe out the savings of millions of

American families. Their inheritance turned to ash, each family member must

contend with disappointment, but also — as the effects of the downturn start to

hit — the challenge of sheer survival.

Recently affluent Avery is petulant that she can’t buy olive oil, while her sister

Florence is forced to absorb strays into her increasingly cramped household.

As their father Carter fumes at having to care for his demented stepmother now

that a nursing home is too expensive, his sister Nollie, an expat author, returns

from abroad at 73 to a country that’s unrecognisable. Perhaps only Florence’s

oddball teenage son Willing, an economics autodidact, can save this formerly

august American family from the streets. This is not science fiction. This is

a frightening, fascinating, scabrously funny glimpse into the decline that

may await the United States all too soon, from the pen of perhaps the most

consistently perceptive and topical author of our times.

Hitman Anders and the Meaning of It All

by Jonas Jonasson

A madcap new novel from the one-of-a-kind author of THE HUNDRED-YEAR-

OLD MAN WHO CLIMBED OUT OF THE WINDOW and THE GIRL WHO SAVED

THE KING OF SWEDEN. IT’S NEVER TOO LATE TO START AGAIN. AND AGAIN. It’s

always awkward when five thousand kronor goes missing. When it happens at

a certain grotty hotel in south Stockholm, it’s particularly awkward because the

money belongs to the hitman currently staying in room seven. Per Persson, the

hotel receptionist, just wants to mind his own business, and preferably not get

murdered. Johanna Kjellander, temporarily resident in room eight, is a priest

without a vocation, and, as of last week, without a parish. But right now she has

two things at her disposal: an envelope containing five thousand kronor, and an

excellent idea . . . Featuring one violent killer, two shrewd business brains and

many crates of Moldovan red wine, Hitman Anders and the Meaning of It All is

an outrageously zany story with as many laughs as Jonasson’s multimillioncopy

bestseller The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window

and Disappeared.

Kim Preston, good luck for this weekend’s Strictly Sumner competition. The pair have chosen to raise

money for the school as part of Saturday’s event, where they will perform in front of a large crowd

groups, clubs and charities.

Coming together

ALL GO: Work is progressing on Living Springs’ Founders Field

project, with the hard surfaced sports court being sealed last week.

The finished project will include a playing field, the court, and a

picnic area. Living Springs chief executive Denis Aldridge said it was

all coming together, and they hoped to see it finished within the

next few weeks. “This is a wonderful project coming together here

which includes Founders Field, a large scale sporting field which

opens up a whole lot of possibilities including concerts, jamborees,

and large events with lots of tents and all the rest,” he said.

Top tips for swimmers

Two young swimmers from Mt Pleasant

and Sumner got the chance to learn

from the best at a national swimming

camp.

Mt Pleasant’s Oliver Aikawa, and

Sumner’s Hugo Tresfield qualified for

the 36-member Jetstar Super Swim

Squad Camp which was held in Auckland

from April 23-25.

Both qualified for the camp after winning

their age groups in the NZ Ocean

Swim Series race at Corsair Bay last

year.

The coaches for the camp was captained

by Northern Arena head of

swimming Dean Kent, and included

double Olympic gold medalist Danyon

Loader, and Rio 2016 Olympic qualifier

Emma Robinson.

Recently crowned winners of the

2015/2016 New Zealand Ocean Swim

Series, Olympic hopefuls Charlotte

Webby and Nathan Capp were also on

the coaching team, as well as elite Australian

open water swimmer, Michael

Shiel.

performed well to take the

“Traditionally more comfortable

running the crosscountry

“In spite of a less than

“I have watched Fitch run

so many races and know

the signs when things aren’t

relief when he ran through

the 24km mark looking

strong,” she said.

She said he continued to

maintain consistent pace for

the rest of the race in spite

of some cramping issues.

“Running into the finishing

and he was two minutes

clear of the next finisher,”

she said.

Meanwhile, the Sumner

with two races.

The opening event was

the Hagley Memorial

relays, held over Anzac

weekend, followed by

the Lionel Fox relays, at

Woodend Beach Domain on

In the Lionel Fox relays,

Ben Ainsley and Nathan

ORGANIC HORTICULTURE COURSES

Instruction in organic horticulture is

now well established at the Lincolnbased

Organic Training College. The

next year-long course, which begins

on 1st August, will be the ninth

intake for the college. Students need

no prior qualifications or experience

to commence Year One and can

study full or part-time. Those who

have some horticultural background

can go straight into Year Two.

An added appeal of the course is that

all fees are under $500, and full time

students are eligible to apply for a

loan or allowance through Studylink.

Course Director Bill Martin says it

works well to start the course year in

the spring. “The organic horticulture

course is all about growing so we

want to start the course in spring

when it is the right time to begin

planting.”

Year One students get plenty of

hands on training in subjects such as

sowing and planting organic crops,

soil management and composting.

The Year Two students have the

option of using land and facilities

on the Biological Husbandry Unit

(BHU) Farm to grow and sell their

own certified produce – a semicommercial

venture that gives

students a real taste of organic

horticulture as a business. The

students grow vegetables under the

guidance of a mentor and sell them

at a weekly stall at Lincoln University

“The Year Two programme gives the

students experience in a commercial

environment without any risk. It’s

the icing on the cake for a lot of the

students here,” says Bill Martin.

As well as the year-long organic

horticulture courses a distance

(correspondence) programme in

organics is also available.

The Organic Training College is

located at the Biological Husbandry

Unit at Lincoln University. There

are 10 hectares of certified organic

land as well as greenhouses, tunnel

houses and research areas.

Twins with football talent

Last week Bay Harbour

News reported on promising

football player Ryan

Nicholson. But there is

also another part of the

Nicholson sporting equation

– his twin sister Britneylee.

Fraser Walker-Pearce

reports.

The Nicholson twins started

sport at age four when Britneylee

copied her slightly younger

brother’s choice to take it up, and

a friendly rivalry started.

Now, 12 years later, the Mt

Pleasant twins are fiercely

competitive, and “always” push

each other to do better and

succeed.

Ryan was picked to represent

New Zealand in the upcoming

Super Cup, to be held in

Northern Ireland in July. He

also plays for the St Andrew’s

College first 11, the Coastal

Spirit men’s reserves team, and

is a Canterbury futsal player.

Meanwhile, Britneylee is a

successful footballer, playing

premier football for club,

Coastal Spirit, as well as being

an age group representative for

Canterbury for both football and

futsal. She won the golden boot

at last year’s futsal nationals

competition.

Britneylee said they challenge

each other’s performance when

they get home from a match.

“We’re both very competitive,

we always compare who’s

scored more goals and things

like that,” she said.

“I was born before Ryan, so

I kind of hold that over him,”

Britneylee said.

Ryan said they disagree

on who is smarter, and who

their favourite footballer is.

Ryan’s favourite footballer is

Argentinian Lionel Messi, while

Britneylee prefers Portuguese

international Cristiano Ronaldo.

But they can agree that

Manchester City is their

favourite English Premier

League team.

Britneylee is usually a striker

in her teams, while Ryan prefers

to play in the midfield, which

Ryan said makes it hard to define

who is better.

“We play completely different

positions so it’s hard to say who’s

the better footballer,” he said.

If football doesn’t work out for

the twins, they each have a back

up job in mind.

Britneylee said: “I’d want to

be an architect, and go to an

American college.”

Ryan said: “I’d want to be a

football coach, and give back to

the game a bit.”

They also share a twin

instinct. Ryan said if his sister is

thinking of particular subjects,

he “generally” knows what it

will be.

“I can generally gather the

vibe of what she’s thinking,” he

said.

FRASER WALKER-PEARCE

Ferrymead Bays are in a rich vein

of form having won their last two

games on the trot.

After beating Western 4-1 over

Anzac Weekend, Bays took on

Halswell on Saturday and beat

them by the same margin.

The back-to-back wins see

Bays rise from seventh place to

fourth in the Mainland Premier

League.

First team coach Danny Halligan

said after a slow start to the

season, he is pleased with how

his side are progressing.

“They’re just a couple of wins,

but we are making up ground

from some disappointing results

earlier in the season,” he said.

Bays will play Coastal Spirit

this week. Coastal are currently

second with 17 points from eight

matches.

The match will kick off at

2.45pm at ASB Football Park on

Still Pedalling!

Baby of Focus range alluring

ROSS KIDDIE

The arrival of Ford’s new

Mustang has generated a

heightened level of excitement

within the performance car

market in New Zealand.

The Mustang capped off

a busy year for Ford during

2015, notwithstanding there

was a new Mondeo, a Ranger

refresh, and a heavily upgraded

and revamped Focus.

This evaluation surrounds the

Focus which lands here in both

wagon and hatchback forms;

amidst those variants are four

engine options and several

specification levels.

The test car was my personal

favourite, the Sport hatchback

with its 1.5-litre, four-cylinder

engine. There are bigger

engines – 1.6-litre to 2-litre

and diesel – but I find the baby

of the series quite alluring.

Ford has really embraced

turbocharging technologies,

and the Ecoboost 1.5-litre

stands out for its honesty and

low down torquey characteristics.

The turbocharger not

only helps pump up the power

outputs – 132kW and 240Nm

– but it is also a mechanism for

promoting fuel efficiency.

Ford claims a 6.7-litre

per 100km (42mpg) combined

cycle rating for the

S-specification Ecoboost

FORD FOCUS: Dynamic in terms of power delivery.

Focus. That correlates well

with the 8l/100km (35mpg)

average showing constantly

on the test car’s trip computer,

along with a 5.5l/100km

(51mpg) instantaneous readout

cruising at a steady 100km/h,

the engine quite unstressed at

just 1800rpm.

And if you think small displacement

engines can’t hack

it in terms of performance,

the opposite applies, maximum

torque is available all

of the way from 1600rpm to

5000rpm. The Focus in this

from is feisty, it will scamper

to 100km/h from a standstill

in 8.5sec, and lunge through

a highway overtake in 5sec

(80km/h-120km/h).

Not only does the engine

stand out for its solid power

delivery, it works through the

transmission to provide strong

engine braking on an easing

throttle. If you use that in conjunction

with the paddle-shift

system, the Focus S does feel

sporty, it is punchy and dynamic

in terms of power delivery.

The new enhancements

for 2016 include engineering

changes which have made

the Focus even quieter and

less vulnerable to coarse chip

road seal surfaces. At highway

speed it is superbly quiet, that

only broken by the eager throb

of the engine under load, it’s

not overbearing, but when

you request acceleration, it is

audible.

The suspension and chassis

settings are biased towards

a controlled ride and strong

steering turn-in. You can really

lean on the Focus in a corner

and it will respond with decisive

handling manners and

SPECIFICATIONS

Price: Ford Focus S, $38,340.

width, 1823mm; height, 1469mm.

Configuration: Four-cylinder,

240Nm, six-speed automatic.

Performance: 0-100km/h,

8.9sec.

Fuel usage: 6.7l/100km

controlled suspension movement.

It’s that level of quality

which makes the Focus a desirable

purchase. At $38,340 for

the S-spec model you get all

the trick gear which is landing

in Ford product these days.

Items such as satellite navigation,

keyless entry and ignition,

voice recognition and

smartphone connectivity are

all included. There’s also a

massive amount of safety gear

and function which help in the

everyday missions we have to

tackle as drivers.

Some include enhanced

active park assist, and parallel

and perpendicular park assist.

One of the key safety features

I like is the driver impairment

monitor, it works alongside the

lane keeping aid and alerts to

keep the driver aware that he/

she should be taking a break.

Even though the Focus sits

in the Mustang’s shadow it is

still an integral part of Ford’s

line-up.

The 3 Step Plan to Make

Healthy Habits Stick

Health and Wellness Coach Annabelle Matson gives us her 3 step

plan on how to make healthy habit stick. Add, modify and delete,

it’s as easy as ABC

When it comes to eating

habits and making

improvements to our

health in general, trying

to change absolutely everything about

our lifestyle overnight, very rarely

works. We often think: “if I can’t eat /

do things perfectly, I shouldn’t bother

at all”. As a recovering perfectionist I

totally get that. However this clearly

doesn’t support success. It just keeps us

stuck right where we are, on the dieting

roller coaster, never seeing results for

the long term.

I always say to my clients, “overtime

not overnight”. We want to do things

gradually, because that’s what results in

permanent change. Why weight loss and

many health programs often don’t work,

is because we go from eating whatever

we want, to restricting everything.

So instead of drastically restricting

everything, use my 3 step tool – add,

modify and delete.

A: Pick one thing you want to add

B: Pick one thing you want to modify

C: Pick one thing you want to delete

For example:

Add: A morning meditation to centre

you for the day.

Modify: Refined sugar intake. Alcohol

is a huge source of sugar – so instead of

drinking during the week, stick to a few

just on the weekends.

Delete: Eating after 8pm.

Commit to the add, modify, delete plan for 30 days. Once that all becomes a habit –

start a new add, modify, delete plan.

When you do steps incrementally like that, it creates new habits. You won’t feel

overwhelmed and it feels really manageable. Like magic, it all starts to become a

lifestyle that you LOVE and that are you motivated to sustain.

Tips

Protect yourself for up to 3 months from

cold & flu

It’s coming into the time of year to be thinking about prevention of

colds & flu. Buccaline is an oral antibacterial prophylaxis for the

prevention of secondary bacterial infections associated with cold

and flu. Buccaline provides active immunisation against bacterial

colds. Illnesses of the upper respiratory are often caused by bacterial

infections. Viral and influenza-like illnesses are frequently made worse

by an additional bacterial infections and take longer to recover from.

Immunology investigations show that Buccaline significantly improves

resistance to colds and flu. Protection becomes effective after taking

the last set of tablets. To maintain effectiveness as well as taking

Buccaline at the beginning of the cold season take it again in the

middle of the cold season. Tablets should be swallowed whole with

some liquid one-hour before breakfast or lunch.
